Last night at the ARIA Awards, Australia’s music awards, many bands in our scene took home some pretty majors awards.
For those who might not know about the awards, the “flagship event” is for Australia’s music scene, where it celebrates “great and popular” music in today’s local scene.
5 Seconds Of Summer were the big winners at the event, taking home three of the awards: Best Live Act, Best Group, and Apple Music’s Song of the year.
Taking to Twitter to share his thanks, 5 Seconds Of Summer’s drummer Ashton Irwin shared in a post:
“Thank you Australia. Tonight 5SOS won Best Live Act, Best Group, and Apple Music’s Song of the year. A monumental achievement for the band and our fans.”

In addition to 5SOS’ big win, Parkway Drive also took home the award for the Best Hard Rock / Heavy Metal Album of the year for their 2018 album, Reverence.
The band beat out the likes of Polaris (with the Mortal Coil), DZ Deathrays (with Bloody Lovely), King Parrot (with Ugly Produce) and West Thebarton (with Different Beings Being Different.)
